The history of Albion, Michigan's First Methodist Church dating back to 1836 is told on this 1950's Plate from Homer Laughlin! This Commemorative Plate of Albion's First Methodist Church was made by Homer Laughlin and decorated by World Wide Art Studios of Tennessee.
This shape, Eggshell Nautilus, has a 1-1/4 inch wide, smooth rim with a gold band around the outside edge of the rim. The main attraction of this plate is the black line depiction of the First Methodist Church, Albion, Michigan. The striking black and white transfer of the historic First Methodist Church is accompanied by the history of the church on the back of the plate.
This cream colored plate measures 9-7/8 inches in diameter. It is stamped with a green underglaze shell mark, "Eggshell Nautilus, U.S.A." The date just before "N 5" is obscured by the over stamp of "World Wide Art Studios," with an art palette, "Covington, Tenn." A full description and history of the church from 1836 up through 1953 is also stamped on the back in black overglaze and completes the identification.
With only very minor wear on the gold trim, this is a fine collectible plate. Thank you for your interest! Please visit Maggie Belle's again soon!
